Pro-Life Hero of the Week

Luxembourg's Grand Duke Henri stood his ground to veto or not sign into law an assisted suicide measure in Luxembourg. As you can see the parliament had to change the constitution to get the law passed and then it only passed by 4 votes. (to read full article click the title for the link)

"The vote on the bill was 30-26, but it was stalled for some time. Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition explains. 'The fact is that they've now gone to extreme measures even to carry this out because the Grand Duke of Luxembourg originally refused to sign the bill into law,' he says.

"That forced Parliament to take drastic action to make it legal. 'They went as far as to change their constitution in order to make sure that he didn't need to sign the bill into law for it to become law,' says the pro-life activist."

In all of the bad economic and anti-life news there are still people willing to take a stand against the tide of death sweeping nations.
